    Best Wishes Mr.Prime Minister! People from all walks of life , various ethnic groups and religious affinities love you for your genuine, moderate and simple behavior.Although I left my birth country "Sri Lanka" way back in 1978, but somewhere in my thoughts I always remain as Sri Lankan.That is the permanent sacred binding between the "Soul and land". I wish you see the over all progressive development in all sectors through out the nation.Sincerely hope that you will fulfill aspiration of the citizens.
